Net bows pic Oct. 27

Discovery’s Military Channel sibling has bought the cable TV rights to “Gunner Palace,” the theatrical documentary focusing on an Army field-artillery unit during the Iraq war.

Filmmaker Michael Tucker spent two months with complete access to members of the unit, who set up their barracks in the bombed-out Baghdad palace of Saddam Hussein’s son Uday.

Released to theaters in March, “Gunner Palace” drew a domestic gross of $608,000. “This is the highest-visibility program we’ve ever bought,” said Dan Salerno, VP of programming and development for Military Channel. The network bows the movie Oct. 27. Sister net Discovery Times will also take some runs beginning Nov. 27.

Tucker and Petra Epperlein are co-executive producers.
